📩 Introducing HUG Artist Emails

Start every week with art, curated for you and by you.

Your days of missing out on an art drop because of an algorithm are behind you. You can now follow your favorite artists on HUG and get customized Artist Updates delivered directly to your inbox every Monday.

Shared by the artist, automated through Manifold, and curated by HUG, there are 4 different kinds of updates you get to receive when subscribed:

  • Announcements

  • Items for Sale (Digital or Physical)

  • Giveaways

  • Events

Why emails? 

We surveyed hundreds of artists & art lovers and they all agreed: We deserve to connect directly without an algorithm in the way. Emails are more reliable, but artists didn’t have the tools they need to implement them, so we built the tools for them, and for you.

Want to start connecting with your collectors over email?
Sign up for a free HUG Artist Profile to get access to this tool and many more.

🎙️ HUG is headed to SiriusXM Radio

Our founder Randi Zuckerberg is kicking off a new feature with her podcast, Crypto Cafe, and bringing HUG’s artists with her!

Every other week, Randi will also get up close and personal with an esteemed guest artist, so that you can hear directly from them about their process, inspiration, and future plans! Each guest will also be joined by an emerging artist who will get the opportunity to be mentored by them live.

Next week, Randi will be joined by none other than preeminent AI artist Claire Silver. To make sure you are first to listen, subscribe to Crypto Cafe with Randi Zuckerberg on your favorite podcast player today.

Still here? Have some alpha.

Curation at HUG is ongoing. In a commitment to the artists we serve, we are aggressively growing our global network of gallery spaces, exhibitions, events, and product partnerships.

As our opportunities for Open Calls continue to grow, be on the lookout next week for a new experience to make it even easier for you to share your art with a wider audience.
